Like many trends, thigh-high boots became a fashion must-have after celebrities like Rihanna, the Kardashians and Chrissy Teigen started rocking them. We’ve also seen some of our local celebrities like Avril and Nadia Mukami rock some thigh-high boots on and off the stage. However, they’ve been around way before they became trendy and were mostly worn as seductive footwear. With retro trends making a comeback, thigh-high boots are having a huge fashion moment right now. Here are some ways you can pull off thigh-high boots.

Skinny jeans

This is one of the most common ways to wear a pair of thigh-high boots. It’s also one of the easiest to pull off. A simple switch from your regular shoes to these boots can drastically improve your outfit. The contrast of colours makes the boots stand out more without looking over-the-top. To make it dressier, choose a more formal top. You can wear the look for a casual date with your boo or a girls’ night out.

Trench coat

You can layer up and look cosy yet chic in this outfit. Trench coats go especially well with thigh-high boots since they’re weather-appropriate wear. The thigh-high boots can be worn in place of pants or with light bottoms such as stockings for a runway chic moment. For a casual look, fitted pants or dress will do.

Just like trench coats, sweater dresses tend to pair well with boots since they’re both meant for the cold weather. If you want to rock a stylish look while staying warm, this outfit won’t disappoint. Additionally, you can layer it up more with a bomber jacket.


For a more daring look, you can wear thigh-high boots with shorts. This can be a great outfit for a music or fashion event as it’s both casual and fashionable. Try to go for loose-fitting shorts to avoid looking tacky. Additionally, you can opt for longer boots if you choose to rock booty shorts.

Solid colours are more preferable for this look. You can accessorize with a chunky belt to accentuate your waist which looks especially great on curvy women.


Shirt dresses are perfect for multiple occasions. You can wear them for a casual Friday at the office, a lunch meeting or a casual date.
